  • The Art of Racing in the Rain

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Story

    A funny, happy, sad, irritable and to some extent predictable story. None the less it is a good listen, but have the tissues ready for the sad bits. This story will affect readers as many of us have been touched by separation, death, love and had, or know of a friend with a puppy and watched it mature into a dog. It ends on a happy note, so overall an excellent novel.

    The complete "box set" of T. H. White's epic fantasy novel of the Arthurian legend. The novel is made up of five parts: "The Sword in the Stone", "The Witch in the Wood", "The Ill-Made Knight", "The Candle in the Wind", and "The Book of Merlyn".

    Bookoholics Anon says: "Fabulous reading, epic story and a new chapter!"

    Story

    A grest version of events, an enjoyable listen and a brilliant narrator who never forgot his characters voice.
    An excellent comparison between the days of old and today. White also included modern authors into the story.
    In my oppinion a good listen, loved it.

    Story

    A long listen but I loved this story. Basically it is a story based on a sisters love for her brother and her journey to find him.

    Anna adopts the name of Anastasie for the encounters of many characters and challeges that must be accomplished in order to gain trust from these not so trusting people. These all aid in assisting in Anna's search for her brother.

    Chip Arnold is a well-liked football coach at a small liberal arts college, but his personal life is in a bit of a rut. He goes out drinking with his colleagues, gets along well with his players, and dates all the prettiest women in town - he has the life most straight men dream of. But lately none of the women he dates seem to be igniting any passion in him. Then he meets the new school chaplain, Foster Lewis. Romantic attraction to another man is new and terrifying, and Chip just can't put his finger on why he's drawn to Foster, but it's stronger than anything he's felt for anyone in his life.

    Story

    A little slow and frustrating throughout but I did enjoy the relationships between the boys, coach, Chaplin and women. Have not quite accepted if Chip if bisexual or gay. I suppose the latter is what the author is leading to.

    A direct and to the point array of stories. A good listen, even if your not in the mood!, and you will relate to one or more of the short stories.

    PS.. The raspy voices add to the outcome of each scenario!

    Story

    I have all the Anna Travis books and have listened to four thus far. I have found each storyline has a similar climatic piece followed by a challenging ending and some lecturing.
    The first three books were narrated by the same person, but this book was read by a different narrator and took a littlle time for me to accept the new voices of the old carracters.

    Overall, a great storyline, capturing you, yet again with the entwined plots and confusion. James continue his endless infactuation and hold on Anna. The entwined relationships between the staff and their lives in the back ground is maintained, but the focus is always on the main characters and the perpetrators.

    The ending is always the same, well in the first four books..... a little frustrating but a good read (sorry listen), none the less.

    Hope you enjoy the Anna Travis series as much as I am.
